Aristo is by Voix Du Nord a Group 1 winner and top class Jumping Sire, with an incredible 67% winners to runners. The highest rated Bumper horse currently in France is by the sire. Good products include one of Jonjo’s stand out’s of his horses to follow - Taquin Du Seuil, Caesars’ Palace, Ulysse Collonges and out of J’aime by Royal Charter, top class Sire by Mill Reef, from the family of Lease Back and O’Maley.
Aristo ran in some important AQPS flat races including 5th at Moulins. He has had 4 runs on the flat culminating in an easy success at Cluny. The race prior to this was at Moulins, a £15,000 premium race in which the winner by Scorpion, A Pleins Dents is considered to be one of the best Bumper horse currently in France, who went on to win the equivalent of the Aintree/Cheltenham Bumper at Maisons Laffitte. The horse who finished 4th in this race beating Aristo by a head is called As De Ferbet who went on to win impressively first time out in a Listed Hurdle race at Auteuil. Aristo ran very greenly in this race making the result even more impressive.
Aristo is a stable stalwart with 7 wins and over £70,000 prize money won, he has done really well at grass this summer and will embark in a Novice Chasing campaign at the earliest opportunity, hopefully culminating in us getting to Cheltenham in November.
